A police officer accused of killing 13-year-old boy Yassin Juma while enforcing the ongoing curfew has been released on Sh 1 M cash bail.
High Court Judge Luka Kimaru released Duncan Ndiema with an alternative of Sh 2 Million bond and two sureties of similar amount.
Ndiema was ordered not to step at Huruma Police Station or interfere with witnesses in this case.
The accused had earlier denied murder charges. The officer through his lawyer Danstan Omari had told the court that he is a law-abiding citizen and will co-operate with the prosecution.
Ndiema has been charged with the murder of 10-year-old Yassin Moyo in Huruma early March this year.
It is said that the bullet hit the boy as he stood on the balcony of his family’s home with his siblings. Police officers moved through the crowded neighborhood, enforcing Kenya’s coronavirus curfew.
The family of the victim was also present in court including his mother and father
